Sunday lunchtime, Halifax

Sunday 20th October 2019, 12.50pm (day 2,978)

Sunday buffet, Halifax, 20/10/19

It’s always nice to eat out on a Sunday lunchtime. Wherever you may be.

Rain shower at the marina

Friday 18th October 2019, 3.00pm (day 2,976)

Shower at marina, 18/10/19

Yes, I would rather the box was not there. But one can’t have everything. Otherwise this rain/sun combination did catch my eye as I came home early from work — very early, but then again, it is Friday.

Misty vista

Wednesday 16th October 2019, 10.10am (day 2,974)

Misty house view, 16/10/19

A couple of weeks at home loom, and today was spent entirely there. At least, for blog purposes, I do have things to look at out of the window — mist, and mast.

Autumn comes to campus

Tuesday 15th October 2019, 3.00pm (day 2,973)

Campus, autumn colour, 15/10/19

Six days away from campus and in that time, everything seems to have turned gold. Is that a jacket in the branches at the top? Or the ubiquitous and planet-killing plastic bag? Guess we can find out for sure when the rest of the leaves are gone.

The South Bank

Saturday 12th October 2019, 11.25am (day 2,970)

South bank, 12/10/19

A weekend away, which started (as my weekends away often do) with a Friday night out in London. This morning, Saturday, I walked part of the way to the station, crossing Westminster Bridge which seems to have become one of Britain’s most fortified spots — a place to point the camera away from, and turn instead to this view of the first inklings of autumn colour on the south bank of the Thames. I like the two figures just captured in the bottom corner.

Under surveillance

Friday 11th October 2019, 9.35am (day 2,969)

Pigeon surveillance, 11/10/19

Tensions are clearly running high in the ongoing pigeon-duck war. With negotiations having broken down, the pigeon high command has sent out a brave scout to keep an eye on the mallards. But what it hasn’t spotted is the counter-espionage agent sneaking in from the left.

Boot man, Hebden Bridge market

Thursday 10th October 2019, 9.40am (day 2,968)

Boot man, 10/10/19

On the 10th October 1991 I turned up in Yorkshire for what was originally planned to be a stay of a few weeks while I ‘got myself sorted out’. Twenty-eight years later, I am still living here: the last eighteen of those in Hebden Bridge. So let’s make today’s pic a home town shot. This is commercialism again, but of a far less predatory sort than yesterday’s. In the matter of boots, defer to the boot man (Bakunin — paraphrased). I hear the olives on the next stall along are pretty good too.

October commercialism (and an inaccurate clock)

Wednesday 9th October 2019, 10.50am (really) (day 2,967)

Pumpkin lanterns, 9/10/19

I did not notice the inaccuracy of the clock at the point of taking the photo. But I can assure you that I could not have been here at 10.15am. If you askĀ  me, the ‘pumpkins’ are also too early. What influence do I have over the ongoing encroachment of The Festival of Utterly Disposable Tat, however.

Sleeping outside M & S

Friday 4th October 2019, 9.05am (day 2,962)

Sleeping outside M&S, 4/10/19

I’m sure the guy in the sleeping bag looks forward with keen anticipation for M & S’s “lovely new Manchester store” as if it will be radically different from the present one. It’ll be unlikely to offer overnight accommodation, I assume.

Hebden Bridge sunrise

Thursday 3rd October 2019, 7.10am (day 2,961)

Hebden sunrise, 3/10/19

Like Tuesday, a day spent in Manchester. But also like Tuesday, I preferred a picture taken early, before leaving home. The view from our back windows hasn’t appeared for a while, but let it do so this morning.
